    This chick is 4-5 weeks old. I have 4 different breeds (first time chicken owner) and they all looks so different as far as comb, feather and shape. I'm worried about having a rooster as we can't have them in our town.

    Comb is still pretty small so you probably have a pullet.

    I would have to agree pullet. Out of our astralorps it was quite noticeable what ones were pullet and cockerel.

    Pullet.

    At 5 weeks, the comb development of the cockerel is normally quite pronounced, and they are noticeably bigger.
